And she went up, and laid him on the bed of the man of God,
and shut the door upon him, and went out. And she called unto her
husband, and said, Send me, I pray thee, one of the young men, and
one of the asses, that I may run to the man of God, and come again. And he
said, Wherefore wilt thou go to him to day? it is neither new moon, nor
sabbath. And she said, It shall be well. Then she saddled an ass, and
said to her servant, Drive, and go forward; slack not thy
riding for me, except I bid thee.
2 Kings 4:21-24
As we apprehend the manifestation of the promise, that which was spoken over us, there may be a few distractions.
The back drop. This woman who was rich, (with permission from her husband, another story another time, LOL) decided to bless the man of GOD, by building a room for him in their home.
The Prophet Elisha, asked what can I do for you since you have blessed me? GOD is waiting to bless you because your life, your worship, sacrifice is a blessing to him. Her reply, “I’m good”.
The child dies, she takes him, lays him on the Prophet’s bed, decides I am going to find the Prophet. Her husband’s response, it’s not the designated days for him to come by. She is determined. Scripture says she saddled a donkey told the servant “Drive, and go forward”
Your promise might be dead or appear to be dead. What the LORD has spoken may be on life support. This woman had made it up in her mind that “ALL IS WELL” she did not consider the son laying on the Prophet’s bed, dead. This woman had a promise and was, intentional, regarding her destiny and her seed. She was going after it, no mater what it cost.
Prophet gets to the house, breathes on the son, son is resurrected. All we need is the fresh wind of GOD to blow on the promise.
This woman told the servant “Drive, and go forward” in other words, “KEEP IT MOVING”. My destiny is being challenged. I have a promise and it has not manifested and I’ve got to do whatever it takes to see the fulfillment.
I want to encourage someone today to get the attitude of that woman, “DRIVE AND GO FORWARD” Keep it moving….Your Destiny Awaits
